Our PADI IDC with the Caribbean and Central Americas Premier Career Development Center
The PADI Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC) is comprised of 2 components. These 2 components can be taken either separately or together in one course.
The Assistant Instructor portion is the 1st component of the PADI Instructor Development Course and builds upon Divemaster training. The Assistant Instructor course is a 5 day program (2 days with online option) which introduces trains you as an instructional assistant, in academic teaching and in confined & open water training. As an Assistant Instructor you improve your employability within the dive industry and earnings potential. This program credits towards the PADI Instructor Development Course and allows you to gain experience as an instructional assistant before the IDC. The Assistant Instructor course can be conducted as part of the PADI IDC or as a stand-alone program.
The 2nd portion of the IDC is the OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) program, and takes 6 days (3 days with online option). The OWSI develops the candidate’s abilities to prepare academic, confined water and open water teaching presentations. As an Instructor candidate you’ll also learn about business principles, teaching children, risk management and other important topics relevant for the dive professional. At Utila Dive Centre we also cover areas regarding working in different worldwide environments, and resort management, and look at career opportunities in diving, including ‘diver safety’ and ‘technical diving’, resume preparation, and what gives you the best chance of success as a professional in today’s dive industry. Practical workshops during the IDC will develop your ability to retail dive equipment and counsel divers into continuing education programs.
